Enter the hilarious world of the boy who would be Reeves
Vic Reeves' vivid, enchanting, and utterly hilarious childhood memoir is a comic masterpiece.
Before there was Vic Reeves, there was a boy called James Moir who was much the same as any other lad.Obsessed with owning a pet crow, a master at writing his name and terrified of his father's immense moustache. Growing up in Yorkshire and then CountyDurham, the boy who would be Reeves somehow managed to escape the attentions of 'Randy Mandy' and get a crash course in pig castration, before having encounters with Jimi Hendrix and the Yorkshire Ripper.
Peopled with weird and wonderful characters, Vic Reeves' memoir is authentic, witty and inventive, and as unique as you'd expect from one of Britain's most exceptional comedy talents.
“Unusual among celebrity memoirs is that Reeves describes a childhood that was all but perfect”
“One of the great pleasures of this book is his description of life in the hairy Seventies; of discovering David Bowie, Grand Funk Railroad, prog rock and Yes.”
“This is both a touching and fascinating memoir... a great read told in the comedian's wickedly witty humour”
“Unlike the current glut of misery memoirs, his book... is a funny, positive read.”
“Well done, have a gold star”
